13 Nobody's explicitly mentioned this yet, but X.Org is switching a lot of
14 its stuff over to git. That's the reason for keithp's parsecvs tool. The
15 biggest one is the xserver CVS module, which has years of history and
16 much more complex branching than anything I'm aware of in our CVS.
18 They have a similar centralized development model to us, so it's a
19 reasonable comparison. Although there are quite a few less files in
20 their repo, arguments could be made for splitting up gentoo-x86 into one
21 repo per subdirectory or similar.
23 Thanks,
